I brew mostly IPA and DIPA all the time and thats about where i finish. If your in the ballpark of 1.018-1.020 then your beer had better have started in the 1.070's and up.
Your grain bill looks good but i miht bump your Cyrstal up a smidge.
I also agree to mash a bit higher if its drying out on you.
If your a dry yeast guy try Mangrove Jacks yeast if you can get it. I always keep a couple packs for emergencys and its a good yeast.
